Paul Røux is a riveting new talent who was born in Nimes, France but relocated to Montpellier at a young age. He was surrounded by music throughout his childhood raised in a family of musicians drawing influences from his childhood years listening to Pink Floyd with his father. From this moment onwards, he became fascinated with the synthesizer and however only recently his peripheral interest in techno as he was awakened to the dark and melodic techno sounds that have become the rage in first in Berlin and now worldwide.
Paul's musical talents are not only limited to deep techno but also is a classically trained pianist and is schooled in jazz piano; he has drawn on these skills for his first EP on Tanit Records: "Sea Level EP". With hypnotic, tension building arpeggiated synths "Sea Level" is the standout side A cut. "Universe" on the flip side is a dark yet equally uplifting choon blended with chugging percussive stabs and rhythms. All together, Paul has managed to marry power and emotion into a stunning debut EP. It's with confidence that we can say both Paul Roux and Tanit are forces to be reckoned with in 2015 and beyond.
